JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas --
Master Sgt. Robyn Pryor (bottom center), a 37th Training Wing Airman, speaks on "The New Normal", a podcast hosted by Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force Kaleth O. Wright (top left). Pryor, member of the 344th Training Squadron, discussed the creation of the community, C3 (Care, Commit, and Connect), a community geared towards connecting women with women. Formed November of 2019, C3 was inspired by "KMC Let's Connect" based out of Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany.
“I wanted to connect with women in the military and discuss issues that were unique to us," said Pryor. Things such as deployments, PCSing, and not having that sense of sisterhood can be frustrating.”
Pryor shared her personal perspective as female in the military. She recognized the unique issues women face especially being a minority. She had mentioned that as a flight attendant her career field was predominantly women, however when she became a technical instructor, she felt that she longed for a sense of sisterhood. C3 aims to be a community of women, bringing people together and offering that sense of sisterhood that can be difficult to come by.
Pryor mentioned that she loved the community and the idea of connecting a specific group with each other. She drew inspiration from how KMC cared, committed and connected younger Airmen and saw potential to create a similar group for Female Airmen at JBSA-Lackland.
